I was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016. I had multiple surgeries to remedy the cancer along with multiple complications. After all of the previous issues, I needed an expert to repair the hernia created by these surgeries. My abdominal muscles had been completely cut from top to botttom. Dr. Melvin used robotics to repair the area. It was very complicated and took over six hours to mesh everything back together. Dr. Melvin has been wonderful through this time of surgery and recovery.

After the news that I would need a cholecystectomy, I did my research to find the best procedure and the best surgeon. As a doctor myself, I know these things can make a big difference in outcome and recovery. Dr. Melvin performed a flawless procedure and I had very minimal postoperative recovery and went back to work quickly. The single scar is practically invisible and I appreciated his warm and attentive bedside manner - not your typical surgeon's demeanor. Thanks, Dr. Melvin!
